Point Of Entry Office (POE)

Primary referral sources, families and other interested parties access the First Steps program locally through 15 system points of entry (POEs) covering the 15 area development districts.

POEs are responsible for receiving all referrals to the First Steps program, facilitating eligibility determination through the coordination of developmental evaluations and assessments and coordinating the development of the initial Individualized Family Service Plan.

POEs also are responsible for local Child Find activities, local public awareness activities, local interagency coordination/collaboration, administrative monitoring and analysis of POE and district performance.
